Sounds like a skinny roadie build?

I hit up Nordstrom last night and played dumb which is much easier for me to do than Murl as I don't know much!

 

They put me in Zegna and said it looked great.   I asked about the puckering of the lapels and they said it was designed like that and that with the newer trim suits you wanted to have that puckering.   

 

I was expecting more from Nordstrom :(

Yeah, not surprising. Your best bet is continue posting pictures of stuff you try on here....but try to get clear front, side, and back shots. Either that or find a good member who has similar taste and good fits and PM them for advice.

I was going to focusing on having lean muscle. I don't exercise regularly (besides going up the stairs at work, but is minimal at best), so I'm dieting now.

The thing is all my suits are hanging on cedar wood hangers. And a tailor told me to put newpapers in my closet to keep the bugs away. 

I will be so freaking ticked if there are holes in my suits. Arg!

 

It can happen.  Last winter I discovered a few very small holes in a herringbone tweed suit which hadn't been worn for a long time.  And moths aren't the only insects that like wool.

 

I've not heard about using newspaper before.  What do you do with it?  Just lay it on the bottom of the closet? 

 

Anyone else know of tactics that work to eliminate bugs?  Thanks in advance.

 

Cheers,

If you want to have "lean muscle," you don't need to diet at 6' 150 pounds; you need to eat a lot and eat well. Still, I understand not wanting to follow the advice of strangers regarding personal health on the Internet in general and on a forum devoted to style specifically. So if you're serious about this, I suggest you ask someone who is CSCS certified.

I assure you that they will confirm what everyone else has been telling you that dieting to lose 35 pounds (when you're 6' 150) is, to put it gently, not a good idea.

You honestly sound like you have no idea what you're doing when it comes to nutrition/excercise/etc. Your non-existent exercise plan is part of the problem. 

 

For starters, you sound like you have no idea that sub cutaneous fat is actually biologically necessary. I have no idea where you got this idea in your head. In order to have lean muscle, you have to have muscle. Also, there is no such thing as 'lean muscle'. Muscle is muscle. Period.

 

For reference, at his most shredded, Bruce Lee was around 141 lbs at 5'8. His bodyfat was stupid low at that point of time. Very few people can actually look like that.

What exactly are you trying to do aside from hoping to look like a stick?

I am glad you asked. 

The oil and other chemicals in the ink on newspapers are supposed to be repulsive to the bugs. 

I just lay them out. Maybe I can get some pictures when I get home LOL.

Yeah. This is at about 148.

 

 

Lets are pretty defined due to the pump and repetitive use, but my forearms right now are probably bigger than my biceps lol. 

 

Same clothes, for reference:

 

 

I was probably a 36-38 jacket in the first picture and I'm a 40-41 now. Waist used to be a 28-30, and is a 31-32 right now.
